I recently picked a used Arrow X2-31C chassis. Also, got a Baker Racing 206 with one race on it and a Hilliard flame clutch.
I got everything setup and took it for a short spin in the neighborhood this afternoon. The engine did fine, but I believe I may have an issue with the clutch. It was smoking pretty good after a couple for short trips up/down the road. I’ve read a good bit about the clutch installation and watched quite a few videos. The bearing race overhangs the crankshaft by about .025 and the clutch assembly is tight on the crankshaft shoulder. But, the clutch drum does have some play after the assembly is torqued down.
Am I missing a spacer or is it OK for the drum to have some play? Before I installed the clutch, I wiped down the inside of the drum with a very light coat of WD-40 and then wiped most of that off with a dry rag.
- I have a short video of the clutch smoking, but can’t seem to figure out how to attach it.
